Mercedes-AMG EQS 4MATIC+ has been launched in India, for Rs. 2.45 crore (Ex Showroom). The German brand's new flagship electric offering comes to our shores as a completely built unit (CBU) import and is the company's second electric offering after the Mercedes-Benz EQC. The Mercedes-Benz EQS is the automaker's flagship electric luxury sedan, and it arrives here in its sportier AMG guise, with the standard EQS 580 set to be launched in India later this year and will be locally assembled. In this avatar, the new Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ will take on the likes of the Audi RS e-tron GT and Porsche Taycan.
As far as looks go, the Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ electric sedan makes quite a sporty impression, and gets visual differences from the standard EQS. The exterior builds up on AMG styling giving it a sharp and imposing stance. The front end features digital light headlamps, AMG-specific black panel grille with vertical struts in chrome, integrated Mercedes star, and "AMG" lettering, while the front bumper is body coloured. The front apron features the hallmark AMG A-wing design painted in high-gloss black with chrome trim. And all the design elements help the Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ to achieve a drag coefficient of 0.23. The profile gets AMG side sill panels in high-gloss black while sitting on 21- or 22-inch AMG light-alloy wheels in Aero or Heritage design. The rear section has a large rear spoiler with a rear apron in the colour of the car and an aerodynamically optimised diffuser with six longitudinal fins.
On the inside, the Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ looks sublime having a well measured balance of sportiness and elegance. It gets AMG highlights in bucketload complementing its aggressive demeanour, thanks to the AMG seats with individual graphics and special seat covers in Artico man-made leather with Microcut microfibre and red contrasting topstitching. Alternatively, seat upholstery in Nappa leather is optional along with AMG-specific seat graphics. The MBUX Hyperscreen takes centre stage in the Mercedes-AMG EQS 53 4MATIC+ electric sedan and three screens sit under a glass cover and appear to merge into one.
